Interesting article with links from Ilya Grigorik about Tokyo Cabinet, Tokyo Tyrant (remote network access to the DB, via a rest_client p.ex.) and the “magnifique” Lua programming language, integrated for the ease of creation of user _designed functions into the server. A question I asked is the ability, or lack, of dinamically feed the server with extensions, without the need for restarts (updates, etc).
Not to miss this article too: Tokyo Cabinet: Beyond Key-Value Store
Ruby, Perl, Python et_al bindings available.
I tell you, “it’s
Big in Japan”
